    This museum is located in the 17th and 18th century buildings of the former St. Remi Royal Abbey (listed as a World Heritage site by UNESCO), where the holy ampula, used to anoint the kings of France, was kept. It houses important collections relating to the history of Reims.

    The museum is divided into 4 sections:
    - The history of the abbey buildings; tapestry depicting Saint Remi's life (Renaissance)
    - The Gallo-Roman section can be seen in the abbey’s 17th century refectories and kitchen. Here one can admire the splendour of the ancient city of Reims which, under the name of Durocortorum, was the capital of the imperial province of Belgium and the residence of the Roman governor (Legatus Augusto Propraetore)
    - 300 m2 of remarkable military collections, from ancien times to the 1870 war
    - local collections from Prehistory to the 16th century

  • Un très bon musée

    Surprenant par sa taille, ce musée est iinstallé dans une ancienne abbaye royale, classée au patrimoine mondial de L'UNESCO. Il propose notamment de très interessantes collections archéologiques. A notre grande surprise l'entrée était gratuite puisque nous nous y sommes rendus le premier dimanche du mois.

  • LE musée de Reims

    C'est LE musée de Reims. varié dans ses thèmes et les époques, le bâtiment en lui-même est un écrin intéressant. A visiter et à apprécier sans modération.
